Researchers at the Yale School of Medicine in New Haven, CT are looking for patients with inclusion body myositis (IBM) to participate in a study using Electrical Impedance Myography (EIM). The purpose of the study is to learn if EIM is useful for measuring the severity of inclusion body myositis. If successful, this technique could be used in clinical drug trials, potentially making it easier to gain FDA approval for medications that may benefit IBM patients.
